Hindutva, Marathi first is Shiv Sena pitch

Magh Krushna Asthami

By Prasad Patil
The Shiv Sena executive chief Uddhav Thackeray sounded the Hindutva bugle at a well-attended rally in Kurla’s Nehru Nagar area on Sunday and gave enough hints that a stringent saffron and state-centric agenda would be its main election plank.
Mr Thackeray and former Lok Sabha speaker Murli Manohar Joshi were at a rally to commemorate the victory of the Sainik Kamlakar Naik’s in the municipal byelections.
Mr Thackeray, blowing to smithereens the conspiracy charge against those arrested in the Malegaon bomb blasts, said that there was no need for the police to charge those arrested with a conspiracy to make India a Hindu rashtra.
Speaking at the rally, Mr Thackeray said that the anti-terrorist squad has arrested some people in connection with the Malegaon blasts.
"They have also been charged for hatching a conspiracy to make India a Hindu rashtra. This is a Hindu rashtra and no one needs to conspire, only our resolution is enough to achieve the same. If they are guilty they should be punished, I have nothing to say about that," he said.
Coming to the party’s old "sons of the soil" agenda, Mr Thackeray made a scathing attack on Union railway minister Lalu Prasad Yadav saying that it was people like Mr Yadav who were the real regional bigots, a charge levied on the Shiv Sena’s leaders.
